Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars Ratings (Mondays)

dancing with the stars all stars ratingsTo help stave off declining ratings, ABC is airing an All-Stars edition of Dancing with the Stars this fall. Could this powerhouse actually be in danger of being cancelled — or at least cut back to one cycle per year?

The teams are Pamela Anderson & Tristan MacManus, Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Sabrina Bryan & Louis van Amstel, Hélio Castroneves & Chelsie Hightower, Joey Fatone & Kym Johnson, Shawn Johnson & Derek Hough, Drew Lachey & Anna Trebunskaya, Gilles Marini & Peta Murgatroyd, Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy, Apolo Anton Ohno & Karina Smirnoff, Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas, Melissa Rycroft & Tony Dovolani, and Emmitt Smith & Cheryl Burke.

The 15th season of Dancing with the Stars typically airs Monday and Tuesday nights on the ABC network.

Here are the TV show’s ratings for the Fall 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if Dancing with the Stars is going to be cancelled or renewed for season 17.

These figures will be updated as the weeks progress so be sure to bookmark and return to this page:

Year-to-year, the season debut of Dancing with the Stars was down by an astounding 38% in the demo (vs a 4.0 rating) and 26% in viewers (vs 19.03 million). This represents a series low for performance episodes in both ratings categories. Total viewership is still impressive but the demo numbers are not good.


Reference point: The 2011-12 season averaged a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.91 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the All-Stars version of the Dancing with the Stars TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for another season?

I think it’s natural for a reality show to decline in the ratings after 15 seasons. Look at Bachelor, Idol, and America’s Next Top Model, they are all in the same boat! As long as the viewership remains impressive, the show will be on the air in my opinion. Dancing is now just being to go up against other competition in the The Voice and other shows. Mondays use to be Dancing with not much else good on the other networks, hence the drop in the demo ratings. What show would ABC replace Dancing with that would give them 15 million viewers per episode? Likely nothing at this point. They tried Skating with the Stars, but that was an epic flop!!!! It perhaps could get cut to one cycle per year down the road, but it will still be on. Perhaps, moving it to a different day of the week might help. Honestly, I LOVE the new half scoring system!!!! I have been asked for that for years!!!! I think the show will be fine for at least a few more years!!! If they cut it too one cycle though, then I think they need to extend the season to more than 10 weeks!!!! But only time will tell! Really surprised that other networks haven’t tried to create copies of this show in some way!!!! Much like the Idol concept is copied and twisted on other networks.!!!!!!!
